Super PACs offer $1.5M for Cruz-Trump debate

Two super PACs supporting Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign are offering to donate $1.5 million to charities that help veterans if Donald Trump will debate Cruz head-to-head before the Iowa caucuses.
The political action committees, Keep the Promise I and II, are proposing a one-hour debate to be held in Iowa on or before Jan. 31, the day before the caucuses, with a moderator chosen by the candidates.
Cruz himself sent a letter to Trump Wednesday inviting him to debate in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday night. The Cruz campaign suggested conservative radio hosts Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh as possible moderators.
Trump dismissed Cruz’s proposal earlier Wednesday. He is skipping Thursday’s night’s GOP debate amid a feud with debate host Fox News Channel.
